Pay-Per-View Takes on a Funereal Quality in Britain

This is pay-per-view unlike anything you've ever seen - hopefully. The latest twist in online services in Britain is the pay-per-view funeral, scheduled to go live today. This item was reported by Reuters and picked up by several national news services so I am assuming this is not an April Fool's joke. Wesley Music, the company offering the service, plans to charge around $150US for viewers to access a live webcast of funeral services. Designed for friends and family unable to attend in person the system makes use of a camera mounted in the chapel and has already been tested and used by people as far away as Canada and Australia.
